This is actually the Aussie version but it gives an idea...

Interesting...

Now, are those the new SX 17" wheels, for one? And the GDI thing is intriguing, too...

I actually really like the design of this
if you lower it and put a set of nice rims on it will look clean
but im not a fan of the taillights and exhaust tip

GDI won't be coming to North America. We'll still get the 2.0L and 2.4L Theta's. The engine in the GDI is the 1.6L gamma engine.

I like it...kind of too much station wagon (hyundai elantra touring) for me and not enough hot-hatchback (mazda3/golf gti).

Now....with a redesign of the Rio in 2012 is this going to be the only hathback for Kia?

1:38 or so--- big ole gap in the diffuser- and what looks like a soda straw sized exhaust? that has gotta be just a trial run.......

other than that- if i had a family- and had to drive a mom sorta thing- i could see me having fun with these.......
already have a lady at work looking at one ........dunno if she is gonna go thru with it- but after a few more videos like this - she might sway to the kia side........

I don't know why, but I always loved hatchbachks, and this one is no exception.
